On the same island as its sister camp (Chitabe), Chitabe Lediba is a more intimate destination and is ideally suited to small groups and families. The surrounding mix of savannah, woodlands and palm-dotted floodplains, that characterise this corner of the Delta, support a diversity of species year round. Game drives take in an abundant array of herbivores: giraffe, buffalo, red lechwe, tsessebe, impala and elephant, which in turn attracts the larger predators: lion, leopard, spotted hyaena, cheetah and wild dog.
Of the five meru-style guest tents, each decorated in a distinctive and inviting style, two are specifically designed for families having adjoining bedrooms and a shared en-suite bathroom. The dining area, lounge and pool have a glorious vantage over the small lediba (a lagoon within a channel) after which the camp is named and lend themselves to recounting exciting safari tales.
INSIDER'S TIP: Scan the bushveld during your evening drive for nocturnal mammals such as civet, genet, bushbabies, owls and leopard.

Game drives reveal the rich wildlife of the area from predators to prey. These open 4×4 vehicles accommodate a maximum of seven guests allowing each a ‘window’ seat.
Afternoon to evening drives provide opportunities for you to see nocturnal mammals such as civet, genet and bushbabies, as well as owls and perhaps leopard.
Walking safaris (dependant on qualified guide availability) with skilled guides offers you the exciting opportunity of coming across big game on foot as well as observing the smaller things you miss when travelling by vehicle.
The birdlife is excellent and varies throughout the year, depending on water levels and season. They include African hawk-eagle, ground hornbill, scarlet-chested sunbird, red-billed hornbill, gabar goshawk and red-billed francolin.
